Or, if you have it: dos2unix

or write a perl script (or a sed script, but I'll leave
that as an exercise for the reader :)
#!/usr/local/bin/perl -i.bak

while (<>) {
  if /($^M)/ { s/$1//g; }

(N.B. I'd embed that ^M using emacs - ctrl-q ctrl-m,
NOT just a carat followed by a capital M...)
this has the added convience of being highly reusable,
can create backups of the original files (kill the .bak
in the -i switch if you don't want backups) and accepts
more than one file for input: *.c *.h

That'd be a tedious process to do that for every single
file using vi ;)
